Beauty Dish
Name: Beauty Dish

Very nice, very specific look. Use this for portraits. It has a sweet spot on it, basically you don’t want be too far away from your subject. It’s like a hard and soft light. Very cool! Highly recommended.


This CowboyStudio Photography Studio Beauty Dish helps give your photos a magazine high fashion look and would be a great addition to your studio. The beauty dish is great for catching good light. It creates a dead zone in the center of the picture, giving you the look of a magazine.

The beauty dish is very unique in the way that it diffuses light. Unlike a softbox or a reflector which has an “illuminating” surface, the beauty dish has a circle of light with a hazy center. The beauty dish is also unique in the shape of light it makes. The light is doughnut shaped – a round circle with a hole in the middle. This shadows less light on the subject while making the back shadows less harsh. If it is close to the subject you will get a doughnut-like shadow on your background.

You only need new gear if you can define exactly how your current gear is limiting you and how the new gear would remove the limitation. If you can’t the money would be better spent on workshops and other forms of training.
